• Honor our vets on Veterans' Day

    We tend to overlook and take for granted the freedoms and rights that we Americans enjoy each and every day of our lives.

    More importantly, we have a tendency to forget about the men and women who have, throughout the history of our country, stepped forward to earn and protect those freedoms and rights our veterans.

    Thus, its not too much to ask that we all take time this Sunday to remember and honor those veterans, as well as those who are currently serving in our armed forces.

  • Work session brings all parties together

    Those who are involved in making decisions on improvements to Vandalias downtown business district were given a lot of information to digest on Monday night. They now have the challenge of sifting through that information and reaching a consensus on what improvements, if any, will be made.

    During the Vandalia City Councils work session, representatives of the citys consulting engineers, HMG Engineers, explained their beliefs on why the city has had nothing but bad luck in bidding out the downtown improvement project.
